About this listing

Supremely comfortable, fully-renovated traditional Czech country cottage that sleeps up to 13 people in the Northern Czech 'Krkonos' or Giant Mountains.

The space

Chalupa (pronounced ka-loop-ah) is the Czech word for a specific kind of country cabin/cottage built in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.

In this case our Chalupa was built around 1830 of huge timbers and was carefully renovated in 1995. It sleeps up to 4 couples and up to 6 additional children/adults comfortably in separate beds.

The cottage is fully furnished, recently re-equipped and sits in in the village of Rokytnice (pronounced Rocket-neet-say) at the base of the scenic Krkonose (pronounced kerk-ken-oh-shea) or giant mountains, about 1.5 hours north of Prague.

With some certainty, the time spent in our Chalupa will be one of the most positively memorable vacations you ever take.

Rokytnice is teaming with activities, particularly in the winter and summer seasons. In the winter, the town boasts the longest ski slope in the Czech Republic - comparable to Stowe, VT in the USA. In the summer, hiking and mountain biking are the most common activities. Excellent restaurants and standard ski village shops (a supermarket, ski/bike rental locations, etc) are located throughout the town. Nearby alpine towns of Spindleruv Mlyn and Harrachov have additional activities like a bobsled run and ropes courses in the summertime.

First of all, the apartment looks in real much better than at the pictures. We travelled with 10 persons and we had plenty of space. The living room provides enough space to enjoy the time together and to have nice coocking evenings. In addition, Ales was taking care and he explained everything to use and provided additional fire wood! In total, we had great WiFi signal, the apartment was clean, we lived close to downtown/supermarkets and the ski area! It was great and I would totally recommend the apartment. Hopefully, see you again soon! Best, Waldemar

Great Mountain Retreat. Very comfortable and cosy. Fireplace is nice, floor heating is a treat and so is the space in the house. On top of that it's situated right next to the stop of the ski-bus.

The house is amazing. The directions to find the house are quite good and necessary as by using the number of the house one doesnt find anything in (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps. The house caretaker was super helpful especially as one of our party arrived earlier than the rest. The house is perfect for a group or large family, we felt almost immediately right at home. we slept comfortably with 11 persons and with 3 bathrooms the fighting for mirror space was kept to a minimum. Within walking distance is both the shopping and the piste, and the ski bus stop is at the end of the driveway. It is however nice to have a car to get crates of beer and water. the living area is cozy and invites us to gather together and play games. we also enjoyed the record albums, brought back a lot of memories. Wifi works well, although with 11 heavy users we did put it through its paces. The yard is also perfect, the girls went sledding and had a blast. On the last night we made a fire in the fireplace and really enjoyed the ambiance. We will definitely go again if we are welcome back. Thank you for everything Denise, Belle, Jaap, Ageeth, Jim, Alex, Norbert, Carola, Lara, Barbora, and Sara!

We had an amazing time at Dan's beautiful house. 6 comfy bedrooms and a huge living room offer enough space for a get away with a group of friends. Also a big "thank you" to Ales, the caretaker, who prepared the house so perfectly.

Die Beschreibungen und die Unterkunft war wie beschrieben, das Haus ist für Gruppen und große Familien bestens geeignet. Das hat hat einen besonderen Flair in dem wir uns sehr wohl gefüllt haben. Die Informationen waren ausgezeichnet. Anfragen wurden prombt und und genau beantwortet. Der Kontakt zum Verwalter des Hauses Ales war sehr gut, er ist pünktlich und telefonisch für uns immer erreichbar gewesen und hat unsere Wünsche und Anfragen erfüllt. Selbst vor der Anreise hat er für uns Reservierungen vorgenommen. Seine Empfehlungen waren toll.

Daniel is een hele enthousiaste en goeie gastheer! Hij stuurde ons op voorhand al wat informatie door en zelfs achteraf belde hij ons op om te vragen hoe wij het hadden gesteld! Wij zullen zeker nog terugkomen naar het huis in Rokytnice. Bedankt Daniel!

I am the married father of 3 young kids.

I am finding more time to exercise now that the kids are older (all over 8!).

Most of my hobbies revolve around using my hands - landscaping, gardening, building, etc.

I enjoy speaking Czech as a hobby, although I have never spent the time required to speak the language with proper grammar or to expand my vocabulary.

Other hobbies include macro economics and political ramblings.

In terms of my personal motto, two come to mind:

1. "Have a good time, all the time."
Viv Savage, keyboardist for Spinal Tap.

2. "Live every day as your last, (because) one day you're sure to be right."
Gallows humor exhibited by Edward Woodward on the gallows in the film Breaker Morant.
